Tension in Manipur’s hills has reached a boiling point following the circulation of a distressing video on social media. The video, dated May 4, portrays an appalling incident wherein men from one community subjected two women from the opposing side to humiliation by parading them naked.

One of the survivors, who managed to escape the ordeal, courageously recounted her harrowing experience. She revealed that when they resisted, the perpetrators threatened them with violence, coercing them to undress under the fear of death. Unfortunately, the women complied in a desperate attempt to protect themselves, but were met with further physical abuse, as the men allegedly slapped and punched them.

The situation escalated as the men dragged the women to a nearby paddy field, demanding that they lay down there. The survivor recounted how she followed their orders, and to her horror, three men surrounded her. It was a moment of sheer terror when one of them suggested the idea of rape, but fortunately, they did not proceed with such a heinous act.

In response to this disturbing incident, the authorities have taken some action. The police have registered the main suspect, Heradas (32), and he has been apprehended in Thoubal district. In a bid to address the public’s concerns and reassure them of justice, Chief Minister Biren Singh has pledged to take stringent action against all the accused involved in this appalling crime.

The incident has sent shockwaves through the region, with people demanding swift and decisive measures to prevent such atrocities from recurring in the future. The incident highlights the urgent need for greater awareness, education, and measures to promote gender equality and protect women’s rights in the state.

As investigations continue, it is essential for society to come together to condemn such acts of violence and work towards creating a safer environment for all its inhabitants. Acts of brutality like these should not be tolerated, and the survivors deserve justice and support as they attempt to heal from the trauma they endured. It is crucial for the authorities and communities alike to join forces in eradicating such regressive and inhumane behavior from our society. Only by standing united can we hope to prevent such incidents and foster a more compassionate and equitable society for everyone.
